Shapeshifters are not as popular in the paranormal genre as they should be, but Pamela Palmer has been changing that with her Feral Warriors series, which is being published by Avon Books. The first book, Desire Untamed, is as yummy as it is creative and ferocious!
Kara is just another preschool teacher who is tending to her dying mother. At least, she thought she was until a six-foot-something animalistic man appeared in her kitchen calling her Radiant. Kara quickly realized that everything she thought she knew was far from the truth. Lyon takes Kara back to Feral House and introduces her to the other eight Feral Warriors that belong to her. These shapeshifting, extremely good looking men depend on her for their life force, and their ability to shift.
Lyon and his immortal warriors have been searching for the Radiant for so long that they can’t shift anymore. Their hold on their humanity is slipping, the animal within grappling for control. The only way that things can be set right is for the Radiant to Ascend willingly, but with Kara being raised human, the dream-worthy situation is more than she can handle. Despite the knowledge that she’s immortal, not human, and the key to the survival of an entire race, the only thing that Kara is truly struggling with is her mounting attraction to Lyon. Seeing as how he reciprocates this feeling, it wouldn’t be a problem, except that she’s meant for someone else. Someone a little more reptilian.
Palmer’s world of immortals, daemons, and shapeshifters is fun, exotic, and extra animalistic. It’s hot in every way. Sex is a common theme in the Feral Warrior culture, so if you blush easily or are faint of heart, this may need to be put on the back burner. However, if you’re down for a little feral sizzle in your life to heat up these cold winter months, jump in bed with the Warriors. You won’t be sorry. Palmer taps into humanity’s wild side with this series, and is wonderfully unapologetic. Kara’s personality is one that can be admired, once she gets over her shock of the situation. Lyon is the kind of man that most women dream about: masculine, a little bossy, tender, loving, and not afraid to fight for what, and who, he loves. The warriors themselves are hilarious and create fantastic peripheral characters. You’ll be clamoring for the next book!
